#DeadlineDay: Sakho Quits Liverpool For Crystal Palace

share on:

The sour relationship between Liverpool and Mamadou Sakho has ended, with the defender joining Crystal Palace for £26 million.

The defender had agreed terms with Crystal Palace, but had to wait for both clubs to agree a fee, before penning a five-year contract.

Crystal Palace had three offers for Sakho rejected, but a deal was finally agreed on deadline day, even though it is £4 million less than what Liverpool wanted.

Sakho had problems with Klopp last season , having broken club rules on three different occasions in pre-season.

He was also in a drawn out battle with UEFA, over a doping charge he was cleared of, but broke contractual obligations, by taking substances not sanctioned by the Liverpool medical team.

Sakho followed that incident with a Snapchat rant, that ended his relationship with Liverpool. He stopped playing for the club since April 2016.
